"I believe an industrial designer is not just an artist, we don't deliver fully ready masterpieces. We are guiding a process for our client or ourselves, and sketching is a way to communicate ideas to all stakeholders."

Quick Sketch


Words can be hard to understand each other, drawings need to be quick and simple to explain ideas to 'non-professionals' or to get the design to a higher level when cooperating with professionals. So I believe a designers sketch is just a nice looking doodle because we don't have hours to draw something till the latest detail when were having a meeting. For this reason I started practicing with 15-minutes sketches, to just focus on visualizing an idea and don't loose yourself into details or fancy highlights, no eraser allowed :)
